Opioid Use Disorder and Evidence Based Treatment During Pregnancy: Supporting Recovering Families


The training will explore evidence-based treatment options for pregnant people with opioid use disorder and best practices for family-centered care. As community providers we play a role supporting the transition from active addiction to long term recovery. Key to supporting this transition is helping those we serve build their Recovery Capital. In this training we will focus on the Recovery Capital as an organizing construct and how it can be leveraged to help strengthen recovery.


PARTICIPANTS WILL                

  • Discuss evidence-based treatment for Opioid Use Disorder during pregnancy
  • Recognize challenges faced when parenting and early recovery coincide and explore strategies to support recovery
  • Identify the key ingredients necessary for long term sustained recovery
  • Recognize the role of Recovery Capital as the foundation to support long term sustained recovery
